The Travellers Rest, a traditional Inn between Church Stretton and Craven Arms, assuring you of good food & ale, good accommodation and good service.

The Travellers Rest, a traditional Inn between Church Stretton and Craven Arms, We, Fraser and Mauresia Allison, the owners, assure you of good food & ale, good accommodation and good olde fashioned service. For those wishing to stay with us at The Travellers Rest, we have 12 very nice en-suite bedrooms; 6 are on the ground floor, and 2 of these are suitable for accompanied wheel chair users.

The bedrooms are away from the main area of the Inn, but you do not have to leave the building to get to your room. The accommodation has its own entrance from the car park and garden; ideal if you have brought your pet with you and a midnight walk is needed. Our well stocked bar can satisfy most thirsts; cask ales, larger, stouts, spirits, wines and minerals, throughout the day, and the kitchen takes care of your hunger, be it for a snack or a full satisfying meal - vegetarians no problem - food being served until 9pm in the evening.

Large areas of South Shropshire are designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nearby is the small market town of Church Stretton. This is surrounded by the Stretton Hills and the impressive Longmynd, not forgetting the famous and beautiful Cardingmill Valley. Within easy reach are the towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, each with its olde world charm and castle, and not far from The Travellers Rest is the Acton Scott working farm museum and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre.
